Calvinistic Cartoons: Wisdom from the Nelsons


Calvinistic Cartoons: Wisdom from the Nelsons: Few may remember how heavy the theological content was on "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet". Here is an episode where little Ricky Nels...

This photo was sent to me by Che Che Vermin and I believe this is a Corky impersonator. He is much too small. (note the trash can on his right)

Corky at Art Exhibit


This photo was taken by long time fan of Calvinistic Cartoons, Blayben Moombassa. He is the art critic for the Rhode Island Review and teaches art history at Ming University in the summer. $7,000 is being sent your way, Blayben, for finding this treasure at the Fin Fang Foom Art Museum in Dipstick, Kentucky.

P.T. Barnum Award and Spurgeon

Joel Osteen wins this award for his lack of Gospel integrity.

Did you know that when P.T. Barnum heard about Spurgeon and the great crowds coming out to hear him he sent him a telegram with an offer of a large sum of money (and all expenses paid to and from America) to come and preach in his circus tents. [charge admission was the idea]


Spurgeon sent a short reply:

 Dear Mr. Barnum, you’ll find my answer in Acts 8:20.
  
"But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money".

For Our Reading Pleasure

Here is your opportunity to share a post from another blog. Any post that has interested or encouraged you would be of interest to others. Please link as many as you like. We all need a good read and now is the time for sharing.

A Selection from Pilgrim's Progress

Then I saw in my dream that the INTERPRETER took CHRISTIAN by the hand, and led him into a place where was a fire burning against a wall, and one standing by it always casting much water upon it to quench it; yet did the fire burn higher and hotter.


Chr. Then said CHRISTIAN, "What means this?"

Inter. The INTERPRETER answered, "This fire is the work of grace that is wrought in the heart; he that casts water upon it to extinguish and put it out, is the devil: but in that thou seest the fire notwithstanding burn higher and hotter, thou shall also see the reason of that." So he had him about to the backside of the wall, where he saw a man with a vessel of oil in his hand, of the which he did also continually cast, but secretly, into the fire.



Chr. Then said CHRISTIAN, "What means this?"

Inter. The INTERPRETER answered, "This is Christ, who continually with the oil of his grace maintains the work already begun in the heart: by the means of which, notwithstanding what the devil can do, the souls of his people prove gracious still.

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
~ 2 Corinthians 12:9 ~

And in that thou sawest that the man stood behind the wall to maintain the fire; this is to teach thee, that it is hard for the tempted to see how this work of grace is maintained in the soul."

Last Night at the Velveeta Room


Here is a little bit of my comedy routine at the Velveeta Room:


Announcer: Ladies and gentleman, will you please give a warm welcome to Eddie Eddings!
[applause]
“Alright, thanks everybody! Have you ever run into an annoying Arminian? I used to live in an apartment just above one. He declared his apartment an independent nation, and sued me for "violating his airspace".
...he would always finish his sentences with the words, "in accordance with prophesy"...and he began all his sentences with "ooo la la"...annoying I tells ya.
Of course, Calvinists can be irritating as well...I knew one Calvinist, Bonjo Loopis, who would repeat everything someone said as a question. He would demand that everyone address him as "Conquistador".
One time at church he went around asking people what gender they were. 
Then there was that blogger, Craig Boyd...he would sit in his front yard pointing a hair dryer at passing cars to see if they would slow down. We went out to lunch once and he asked the waitress for an extra chair for his "imaginary friend". 
Thanks everyone, you've been great! See you September 31st! ...and yes, I have a day job.

The Velveeta Room

Here are a few pictures from the comedy club Corky and I opened while I was visiting in the States. I will be leaving for Dubai Monday afternoon where I will open yet another comedy club. 

A Letter from Mac MacArthur


Dear Eddie,
I am the cousin of pastor John MacArthur. I know how you admire him so I wanted to send this photo of him as a wee lad. He is pictured here reading MY book. Every time he came over he would grab that book and read it for hours. I finally gave him an autographed copy of his own on his thirteenth birthday. 
Keep up the good work!
Mac MacArthur

Strange Stuff Dept.

Here is one of the strangest Flintstones newspaper comic strips I have seen. This 1961 episode had the Rubbles and the Flintstones celebrating Christmas before Christ.
Of course, we all get a dose of watered down Christology.
I just thought you might get a kick to see how Hanna-Barbara handled it.

10 Things I've "Heard" on Facebook



Yesterday was National Day of the Ninja and I was completely unaware of it. Well played Ninja Day… well played.


When I think about how much time I’ve spent on Facebook, I wonder how many miles I’ve scrolled on my mouse wheel.


It’s cute how the outdoors try to compete with the internet.


First 5 days after the weekend are always the hardest.


If something cool happens and you don’t share it on Facebook, did it actually happen?


Want to really freak someone out? Add 2 extra turkey legs to the turkey while it’s in the oven.


Whatisthelongbuttonatthebottomofthekeyboardfor?


Common sense is so rare it should be classified as a super power.


It’s amazing the places I will wander to in my house while I talk on the phone.


If you ever get caught sleeping on the job… slowly raise your head and say, “In Jesus name, amen.”

Jon Cardwell - Unshaven

The following post was chosen from another site:

As the old saying goes, “It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.” Well, I suppose we were having a little fun one Sunday afternoon following morning worship service… and it seems we lost an eye on similarity. I think the similarity begins and ends with the bow tie. Yes, some medications and supplements helped me to put on too much weight when I was losing weight far too quickly last year. Couple that with the fact that I’m about a month overdue on my haircut, and it makes my wife and I giddy enough to pose like some of the photos and prints hanging on my office wall.
Not long ago, someone in Talladega asked me, “Have you always had a beard?”
I answered, “No. I grew it right after I got out of the Navy because I have a dimple in my chin and I was getting tired of people confusing me with Tom Hanks.”
He said, “But you don’t look anything like Tom Hanks.”

“I know. The beard works pretty good, doesn’t it.”

Now check out his blog, Justification by Grace, and discover a world of treasures!
